Finger massage

Hey has anyone got close and personal experience using one of those finger massage things? You know the ones - looks like you roll them over your knuckles and are all twisty looking.

Iíve got a few old man knuckles that need tlc but equally donít wanna waste time/money on a gimmick. Iím sure I will find wisdom in the 3.5 people that still use the site.

I have not used the finger massage thing that is made of steel that you see for sale on the counters in climbing gyms. There was a 'flossing' fad, that I have not heard much of lately, that was supposed to improve blood flow to the fingers, although from my anecdotal evidence I can't say whether trying it hindered or helped the recovery of my finger injury at the time. I think its mostly a gimmick - I don't think giving your finger a massage with this steel finger massage thing would be more effective for increasing blood flow than just getting some hand cream and lubing up an o-ring with the thumb and fore-finger of the opposite hand and giving it a bit of the old in-out with the affected finger (I've heard this method works better if you film it and put it on your instagram story feed).

For rehabbing tendon and pulley fingers, I'm a huge fan of just hangboarding with weight removed on a pulley system, and then very slowly reintroducing that weight over time. Less sure if that works for Tenosynovitis, which from your brief description sounds like you may have.

Yeh bro, but this site might get shut down by the mods if Stuey posts his close and personal finger massaging photos, as being porn.

I thought it was only boulderers who get finger problems?
Nah , Im prolly wrong , as I remember reading some time back about bro mikl wanting to sort his hand probs. Then again , both he and bro Stuey prolly getting old man issues that go with the territory I guess.

There you go Stuey , thats the 3.5 quota used up. You are surely wiser now. By the way , for what it's worth , I reckon it's a gimmick , but go ahead and torture yourself if you think it'll help.
PS for a small stipend we can prolly get bro simey to torture you too , but there's a chance he might offer to do it for free just for the laughs.
